Seattle Times
The historic movie theater, Cinerama, has been closed for renovations since last summer. Now the theater is re-opening on November 19 with a midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part I. Changes were primarily technical, and Cinerama now features a new projector (with 3D capacity), new screen, updated sound system as well as new artwork and carpet in the lobby. The concession stand has also been redesigned to house low-priced popcorn and local treats from Theo Chocolate, Cupcake Royale and Café Vita. For more information about the renovations or Cinerama, follow the link. Welcome back!
